Missing parts is certainly one of the main problems that users can face and it also substantially affects the unit’s usability and affordability. However, since the drain is absent and the function is performed via vent therefore, the unit is very compact, advanced, and innovative and serves as an ideal heating solution for indoor usage.
There are several problems with this product, and the missing parts certainly put a damper on its usability, but that is not to say that the absence of these parts render the product unusable. The absence of the drain is made up for by the vent, and so this RTG model can still run fairly efficiently and can serve as an adequate water heating solution for your home, and certainly beats its tanked water heater competition, whilst being mostly on par with other tankless water heaters.
